Great is the art of beginning, but greater is the art of ending
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I announce that I cease all development and activity in the programming universe indefinitely. My career has reached the turning point I was not expecting for at least another year, leaving me highly off guard and without laid-out plans for this hobby's continuity. I have begun a 5-year residency program in Neurosurgery which is clearly not compatible, time-wise, with programming.

I gave in all my passion for developing, and you gave me back your loyalty and trust, even when I did not deserve that much. Now it is the time for payback. I release all my present and past work as Open Source software, in the hope some talented developer will continue maintaining and expanding my vision of a modern, sleek forum software. The intrinsic flexibility of MyBB is the true hidden gem of an otherwise outdated codebase; I do hope the project can continue and be updated complying to the latest coding standards.

I hereby thank Euan, kawaii, andrewjs18, Ben, Matt, Omar G., effone, Eric J., Devilshakerz, Wildcard, JordanMussi and all the other team members I have had the opportunity to work with when I was a MyBB team member. I thank Tomm M, my mentor, who inspired me to pick up coding with his piece-of-art plugins. And finally, I thank all of you MyBBoost subscribers who have helped me getting through my toughest university years economically.

Yours sincerely, Filippo

Remove decimals from newpoints + add extra option?

This issue is marked as solved
Hey there, so 2 things with this plugin (Just installed it, so far its awesome. Was looking for this since I saw it on IPB site and I said wait.. mybboost has something similar, right?)

1) Newpoints = Remove decimal option. Even if this setting is off in newpoints plugin settings, it will show in the hovercards
2) ezTrader = Add functionality with ezTrader plugin please

Other side notes: This doesn't seem to function properly with Online Today plugin installed (hovercard does not hover over the usernames). Along with that, you also can't use regular mybb variables (I was trying to add an a href tag to reputation page, which would require {$memprofile['uid']} variable, but it does not allow it.

Overall, awesome plugin. I read that it isn't really being developed anymore, which I can understand why, but I just wanted to leave these suggestions here in case you find some extra time aside from BankPipe development (which seems to be very hot now :) )

Thanks for these great plugins. Well worth the upgrade!

Third party plugins should be supported as long as they use MyBB's internal function build_profile_link(), which is the one you must edit manually with the data-uid attribute, as explained in the release thread. I don't know about Online Today, but if it doesn't, you have to edit the plugin and add the data-uid attribute where it displays usernames.

As for the other questions, Hovercards just pulls the data from the _users table as plain text. No variables are available in Hovercards' templates aside from the one you specify in its settings (notice they don't have an "$" prefix: in fact, they are not variables, they are just markers which are replaced with a simple str_replace()). Some global variables may work (you have to reference them using the $GLOBALS array), but the plugin is meant to work on the entire board, so including specific variables which appear in a few pages is not recommended as their content will be blank in all others. I won't add extra functionalities to support specific data from specific plugins. What I can do though – if I haven't already – is to add hooks support so you can extend the plugin as you may like, introducing features otherwise not available in the stock plugin.
